2019 Cortada Alta Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our fourth vintage from Cortada Alta shows off how the vineyard is slowly maturing into one of the most interesting sites in California. As usual, it's our darkest wine of the vintage, and the fruity aromas of young vines is intertwined with an intriguing mix of wild sage brush and earthiness. This is true mountain grown Pinot Noir. The palate is deep and rich with plums, wood strawberries and just enough acidity for balance. The 2019 Cortada Alta may be enjoyed young, and it should age for a decade or more. Drink this from 2021 through 2030.
